When a Billion Chinese Jump is a journey through an environment in crisis.
When a Billion Chinese Jump is a journey through an environment in crisis. Jonathan Watts travels from mountain paradises to industrial wastelands, via tiger farms, melting glaciers, cancer villages, science parks, coal mines and eco-cities to examine the responses of those at the top of society and the hopes of those below. Watts is consistently attentive to human detail, vividly portraying individual lives in a country all too often viewed from outside as a faceless state. Based on almost 300 interviews and close to 100,000 kilometres of journeys, this is a book that no reader - no consumer in the world - can be unaffected by.
